Fourth graders are invited to see America’s natural wonders and historic sites for free!

The “Every Kid Outdoors” program gives fourth graders across the country, as well as their families, free access to hundreds of parks, lands and waters for an entire year.

Fourth graders were chosen because research shows kids ages nine to 11 are beginning to learn about the world around them; they’re open to new ideas and are likely to connect to nature and history.

All that is required is the pass be printed out before heading to the park.

Living in the Inland Northwest grants everyone easy access to national parks, sites and reserves. Click here to find national parks in your state.
